3 easy miles today, and got to use a couple of my recent purchases…
- Started the new white/purple pair of the Cumuluses into the rotation. Love that bouncy new-shoe feel. Here’s a question I’m throwing out to the crowd. What’s the minimum amount of mileage you’d recommend on a pair of shoes that I’d be running the marathon in? (obviously, it’s a model that I’ve worn before, and I will be doing at least one long run in them.)
- My new MarathonGirl skirt. I actually like running in this one better than the GymGirl! Was afraid of chafing, but applying BodyGlide beforehand took care of that 🙂 Was actually very comfortable, nothing too revealing…what a difference proper sizing makes. And comes with a pocket on the side to keep keys/ID/money. (For those in the NYC area who don’t want to buy online, they sell the skirts now at the Running Company in the Time Warner Center-but limited selection, I only saw the Marathon Girl skirts in Black and Blue Hawaii.)
- oh and speaking of goods, 72nd street between Columbus and Amsterdam can be so deliciously tempting. Buttercup Bake Shop (best.cupcakes.ever.) on the north side of the street. Cold Stone Creamery on the south side of the street. Yum. And simultaneously, yikes!!
34 miles on tap for this week. the build-up continues…
